Hubby's Hat

Hubby has been asking for a new hat.  The first turn-a-square hat I knit him was made with Noro (and can I said - I told you so!)  Anyway, on our trip to the mountains we visited this cute little yarn shop in Blowing Rock, NC and Eric found some new yarn for a new hat (not itchy).

My heart did a little flutter when he picked out the Malabrigo on his own.  We used a Pearl Ten in Twist and Glazed Carrot (I think) in the Malabrigo Worsted.  I did use Jared Flood's turn a square pattern again (we both really liked it in the first hat).  I think it turned out just great and he is already wearing it quite a bit.  Makes for a happy knitter (and wife!)
